    No, unless he absolved them of that responsibility after it leaked out anyway. I can understand that the initial Twitter leak was an honest mistake...but I think it's compounding the mistake if the network later went back and released the clip without consulting Obama. That sort of thing really harms the journalistic integrity of the media, and makes people less likely to say things "off the record."

    Not that I see anything wrong with what he said...but his communications staff might think it was embarrassing.

    They haveno legal obligationnot to post "off the record" remarks. But I would havethought that they would have kept a moral obligation not to.

    Of course as I said earlier Obama should know by now that the media will not hold back on juicy "offthe ecord" remarks especially such a funny one.

    Well his communications staff propbably has about as much sense of humor as a paper shredder.

    I disagree. I'd much rather listen to Immortal Technique:

    Fair enough.

    Incidently, as often as you are here at this site gracing us with your presence, would we be safe in assuming you are unemployed?

    Who really cares if Obama called the guy a jackass?
